God Knows – #gargleblaster156

with 38 comments


‘It wasn’t me.’

‘It never is.’

‘Promise, Mum. It wasn’t me. It was Sally.’

‘She wasn’t here.’

‘Maybe Dad knocked it over. Or the cat?’

‘God knows. It isn’t really that important.’



‘Does God really know who broke your mug?’






This is my submission for this week’s gargleblaster challenge over at yeah write. This week’s Ultimate Question to answer in 42 words: Who dunnit?

  4. Sure does 🙂 This is cute! Owning up to something is never easy. (I remember the lure of ‘we won’t be upset if you tell us the truth.’ That was a lie 🙂 )
